China Travel Advisory Updated by US State Department – Vax Before Travel

(Vax before the trip)

The US Department of State reissued the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) redrafted advisories on October 26, 2022.

The Level 3 Reconsider TraveThe notice says to reconsider travel to the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

The State Department says local law enforcement and travel restrictions related to COVID-19 have created specific risks for visitors.

All travelers should prepare to be tested for COVID-19 and self-quarantine at a government-designated location for an extended period upon arrival in the PRC.

During quarantine, health authorities will test travelers as often as daily for COVID-19 and will not allow travelers to leave their rooms.

Travelers who test positive during this quarantine period may be transferred to a government-designated medical facility.

Standards of care, housing, testing, and treatment can differ significantly from U.S. standards, the State Department says.

And, as of October 26, 2022, the US CDC’s order requiring proof of vaccination for nonimmigrant non-US citizens to travel to the United States is still in effect.
